A new tab has been added at the left: "Tips for Tournaments." It contains links to short articles about playing in tournaments sponsored by District 25. Two of the articles are new. One serves as an introduction to playing in Regional Tournaments. The other concerns the new Continuous Victory Point Scales that will be used in some Swiss events.

Winners Boards: publishes photos of the winners of every strat in every event of every tournament sponsored by the district. Sad to say, the pages that contained the photos for 2014 and the first half of 2015 were lost in last summer's hardware catastrophe. However, the pages for all tournaments beginning with Hyannis in 2015 are available. The indexes have now been reconstructed.They are both available in the "Tournament Results" tab at left. The index by player can also be reached here. The index by tournament, date, and event is here. Please notify if you find any mistakes or want to submit a photo. It is never too late.
